TTSD Community Newsletter

May 25, 2021

Good evening TTSD community,


I start today’s message full of excitement and pride inspired by our coming together in person last night to celebrate our new, beautiful Twality Middle School prior to our first live School Board meeting in 14 months. A few highlights included:


  • Touring our new middle school facility with our Bond Election and Oversight committees, our Long-Term Facilities Planning Committee, the architects and contractors that brought the facility to life, and a wonderfully passionate group of retired Twality teachers.

  • Resuming our live School Board meetings and being able to meet face-to-face with Board Directors, staff, and members of our community.

  • And the listening and learning during public comment, specifically for those that spoke up about the district’s equity work. More about that later in my message.

Complete message with important links.
